Our Impact

It’s an ongoing challenge to make sure no one goes hungry in Iowa. We partner with 700 agencies in 55 counties to distribute nearly 2 million pounds of food each month.

Hunger Can Happen to Anyone

Hunger can happen to anyone, including you. And it hits closer to home than you might imagine. It impacts Iowans of all ages across the state. Including hardworking people with jobs who can’t afford food at the end of the month. Or those who are dealing with job loss, medical expenses or living on a fixed income. Learn more about the Iowans we help.

In Iowa, 1 in 10 adults and 1 in 8 children face hunger. Like Ka’Meka, a working mom of three who lost her job during the pandemic. Or Willa, a disabled veteran who takes care of her grandchildren. With assistance from our network of partner agencies, we’re ensuring our neighbors won’t go hungry. Read more about Iowans we’ve helped and share your own story with us.
